Healing Hands Newsletter for October, 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands Newsletter for October, 2017

 

Healing hands

 

Dear Patients and Friends,

October is finally here. The weather will be cooling down, and the kids will be getting ready for Halloween. Don’t forget this one little thing when you’re handing out something at the door. The more sugar the children put into their bodies, the better their chance of getting a cold or becoming sick later. Your body does not need any kind of sugar, especially HFCS, (high fructose corn syrup) to survive and for little kiddos, you know the tiny ones… it’s even worse. Help them take care of their bodies by not allowing them to overload on sugar. Here’s what someone told me to do. Let them go out and collect their candy, etc. Then when they return home pull out a few dollars, and ask them to trade you CANDY for MONEY. If they take you up on it, take the candy to the car, and give it to someone that might take a little and not a lot. I’ve even talked to people that gave the candy to their bank. The bank employees would have it available for all their customer and they’ll remember you gave it to them. That’s what I call a WIN-WIN.

A Fact About Halloween You Do NOT Know

I don’t know about you, but there is a lot going on when it comes to Halloween. Here’s what I mean. More than 171,000,000 million Americans will celebrate Halloween this year, with seven out of ten consumers planning to hand out candy.

Total spending will most likely be far more than last year which was around $8.4 billion with a “B”, with the average consumer planning to spend $82.93 on decorations, candy, costumes and more. I don’t want to tell you this but that is a lot of money for one night with the witches and goblins.

“COOL FACTS”

for the Month of October and Halloween…

  • Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters with Snickers pulling in the #1 slot.
  • Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
  • Wow: Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America.
  • The ancient Celts began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human during Halloween.
  • Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the fall harvest and black is associated with darkness. Ugh!
  • Pumpkins also come in white, blue and green. Great for unique monster carvings! I’ve also seen people carve out turnips. Not sure they think they taste as good, but if you can get that big a turnip, good luck.
  • Halloween candy sales average about 2 billion dollars annually in the United States.
  • Halloween is the 2nd most commercially successful holiday, with Christmas being the first. To me Christmas is much better.

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

An 80 year old couple were having problems remembering things, so they both decided to go to their doctor to get checked and make sure… nothing was wrong with them. When they arrived, they explained to the doctor about the problems they were having with their memories. After examining the couple the doctor told them that they were both… physically fit, but that they might want to start writing things down and making notes to help them remember the harder things.

The couple thanked the doctor, paid and left.

Later that night while watching TV, the older man got up from his chair and his wife asked, “Where are you going silly?” He replied, “To the kitchen.”

She asked, “Ralph, since you are headed to the kitchen, will you get me a bowl of ice cream while you’re there?” He replied, “Sure honey.” She then asked him, “Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember?”

He said, “No, I can remember that Mary.”

She then said, “Well I would also like some fresh strawberries on top hun. You had better write that down because I know you’ll forget that if you don’t.” He said, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with fresh strawberries.” She replied, “Well I also would like whipped cream on top of the strawberries. I know you will forget that too… so you better write it down as well.”

With irritation in his voice, he said, “Mary, I don’t need to write anything down! I can remember exactly what you just said.”

He then fumes into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes he returns from the kitchen and hands her a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stared at the plate for a moment and said angrily: “I TOLD you to write it down! You forgot my toast!”

October Quotes

Then summer fades and passes and October comes.  We’ll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.”   –   Thomas Wolfe

Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll. ~Anonymous

Summer makes me drowsy. Autumn makes me sing. Winter’s pretty lousy, but I hate Spring. ~ Dorothy Parker

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. ~Edwin Way Teale

 Why Is Chiropractic So Important

To the Entire Family?

   I’m sure you know that if you want to be as healthy as you can be you should spend the majority of your life getting adjusted. Here’s what most people do however. They go when they hurt, and when they don’t hurt, they don’t go. They rely upon their symptoms to tell them if they’re sick or not. No symptoms means they are healthy right? That’s all wrong, but I’ll go over that in a future newsletter.

You have a cell phone don’t you? Here’s something you heard from me that you’ll want to remember. Keep the cell phone away from your body. Not just your head, every part of your body. It’s terrible and having it next to your head all the time can cause things like cancer, brain problems, etc. ( They say they’re safer..They don’t really know 100%).

Your brain is home-base for everything that happens in your body, and all the nerves in the body are the telephone lines. When you get pain, tingling, or numbness, anywhere in your body there is usually one good source of nerve irritation. That means inflammation.

When your spinal vertebrae (back bones) are misaligned this causes irritation to the nerves at that level. This then can cause muscle tension, muscle spasm, lots of bad inflammation, and pain all along that inflamed nerve. So where are those nerves going? To your finger, intestine, ear, somewhere in your head? (Nerves are everywhere but a large portion of them are NOT pain sensitive. That means you can have issues and feel great, and be symptom FREE.)

The fact that irritation is present causes dysfunction. That dysfunction can mean headaches, indigestion, tightness in your chest, sciatica, and tingling in your fingers or toes to name a few plus it can mean that you might not feel anything. If that irritation is left alone, and you say take aspirin and just cover up the symptoms… this can lead to you have a much more serious condition down the road.

Now for my point. While I believe chiropractic can help LOTS of problems, your job as my patient is to constantly challenge me! What does that mean? Let me tell you. I want you to tell me about a new (or old) problem anytime you’re in the office… so that I can help. Bring your kiddos in to get “checked out.” With all the falls and run-ins they take, their little bodies need to be working at 100% when growing up. I’ve found that most parents neglect getting their children checked. Not because they’re bad, just because they don’t think there is anything wrong.

One last point. In case I haven’t told you this before, each adjustment I give you… boosts your immune system. Here’s what happens. Your white blood cells increase in number over the next 24 hours after your adjustment. This can be crucial when you are sick or are starting to feel sick. So don’t be afraid to keep that appointment when you are sick. It may be just the boost you need to get better – quickly.

Chiropractic care at this office is more than just getting your back “cracked.” It really is a lifestyle change. I hope that you can see why it is important to use chiropractic for more than just back pain, neck pain, etc.

Stop Removing Chicken Skin,

it’s Actually Good for You

If you’re health conscious, you’ve probably heard that you should always pass on the chicken skin; while flavorful, it’s just added fat, which contributes to weight gain, higher blood pressure, and other risk factors for illness. The short of it is, chicken skin isn’t all bad for your health.

Believe it or not, there are some health benefits from eating chicken skin; this has been researched and proven by health experts from Harvard. According to their studies, the oft-feared chicken skin can actually help your heart.

What do the avocado and chicken skin have in common? Unsaturated fat.chicken

Unsaturated fat is actually beneficial to heart health because it helps to lower blood pressure as well as cholesterol, which decreases the risk of heart disease.

If you’re concerned about a huge jump in calories, don’t be. The difference between a skinless serving of chicken compared to one cooked with the skin on is around 50 calories. The flavor chicken skin adds, might even allow you to pass on excess salt, which has very real negative effects on your body.

You may also be thinking of all the grease you’ll be putting into your body. Fortunately, chicken skin actually works as a barrier.  The skin prevents excess oil from entering the meat of the chicken by absorbing it before it can soak in.

Even if you aren’t completely convinced, it’s still beneficial to cook chicken with the skin, to absorb excess oil, and then discard it before dining. Either way, if you make sure to cook your chicken in healthy oil, to begin with, you can definitely cut down on potentially harmful substances entering your body. Olive oil is a good choice.

Like everything else, moderation is the key when it comes to chicken skin. It shouldn’t be eaten in excess, but it does provide some omega-3 fats, which benefit the body. It also contains some omega-6, which can have adverse health effects. Chicken skin certainly shouldn’t be on the menu every day, but it won’t hurt, occasionally, as part of a balanced diet.

Winter and the Holidays are coming!

Healing Hands – September 2017

Dear Patients and Friends,

School is back in session. That means the streets will be busier in the mornings and the evenings again. Kids today are immersed in technology. They are plugged in and tuned out to the world around them. Texting, listening to music, selfies or on tweeter. They are, for the most part, oblivious to traffic and other hazards. You need to be more diligent and aware of them when driving.

The most amazing machine in the history of the ‘natural’ world is the HUMAN BODY. Here’s why I’m telling you that in this newsletter. If you were to purchase this machine (if that were even possible, which it is not) it would cost you billions of dollars. I know you may have a lot of money, but you’re still not a Bill Gates, or Warren Buffett. In fact, that would be more money than you’ll ever have (most likely). But let’s say you borrowed it from your local bank. Once you brought that human body home, you would treat it reverently because of the cost, wouldn’t you?

However, even though it’d be special and valuable… your body you now have is still something you most likely take for granted, and pay ‘little attention’ to until you develop what we call symptoms.

I want to remind you of its spectacular abilities. I want you to think about what would happen if there was some interference to your nervous system (the system that controls all your bodily functions on a daily basis) and how important those functions are to you!!! Make sure you get checked on a regular basis. It might save you some pain.

COOL FACTS

—1,525,000,000 miles of telephone wire is strung across the U.S.

—111,111,111    X    111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

—12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents – DAILY.

—123,000,000 cars are being driven down the U.S.’s highways.

—160 cars can drive side by side on the Monumental Axis in Brazil, the world’s widest road.

—166,875,000,000 trillion pieces of mail are delivered each year in the U.S.

JOKES of the MONTH

Johnny: I think we need a new teacher.
Mom: Why is that?
Johnny: Our teacher doesn’t know anything, she keeps asking us for the answers.

==================================

TIME TO HEAL

One of the first questions a lot of my patients ask me about chiropractic is: “How long is this going to take me to heal up doc?” This is a good question, but just let me say this.

Some drug treatments are prescribed for a lifetime. Things like diabetic drugs and blood pressure drugs. When you are given the prescription, the medical doctor usually says, “You’re going to be on these the rest of your life.”

Now let me say something about your healthcare and chiropractic. I don’t want you to expect me to UNDO years of dis-ease in a single visit. You might feel better in one visit, but I want you to know, I’m not the one that does the real healing. Your body is the healer. Symptoms always come last and disappear first.

I’ll try to tell you how long it might take before you achieve maximum correction, but if you really want to make a change in your life, you’ll want to stay under some kind of chiropractic care the rest of your life. Kind of like brushing your teeth. You just do it.

The latest research shows that 18 months is a bare minimum, but once you’ve reached that stage, things really change internally. You’re going to be feeling a lot better after a few weeks or even days, but if you’re looking for long lasting benefits, you’ll need to have an adjustment regularly for the rest of your life.

Your long term care at this office is based on three things:

 

  1. I’ll look at your objective findings, and your diagnostic findings, and then…
  2. I’ll use my experience with other patients who’ve had similar nerve interference patterns.
  3. Then I’ll consider those characteristics that are unique to you, including your age, how long you’ve had your nerve interference, your general health history, genetic factors, emotional stress, job activities, exercise regimen, water intake, weight and your diet.

The real SECRET is to be “patient with your care”. Work with me and be very honest about how you feel about your care. The better your doctor/patient interaction with me, the better your healing experience.

Quotes

 

“Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat, we say we have had our day.
–   John Donne, 1620

In memory of our fallen this and every September 11th; may God bless each of them. We will never forget our lost children of freedom.

 

Who Are You If You’re Born This Month?

Classified as ‘perfectionists’, people born in the month of September are extremely hard working. They are detail-oriented and organized and are almost perfect in whatever they do.

Their only problem is that they like to point out other people’s mistakes and criticize them even for trivial matters. Otherwise, they are calm and composed individuals and generally excel in the professions such as medicine, law, teaching, writing and designing.

Stress and Belly Fat

I have a little science lesson for you about your “belly fat” hormone, also known as cortisol.  Cortisol is a hormone that your body releases to deal with stress, and unfortunately high levels of cortisol have been linked to increased levels of abdominal fat.

Want to reduce cortisol and burn more belly flab?  Here are 3 things that you can do starting today:

1. Work less – New research shows that if you work more than 48 hours per week, the likelihood of consuming excess alcohol goes up dramatically.  Alcohol consumption increases cortisol, and together they both increase belly fat. If you’re looking to shrink your belly, trimming back your working hours while choosing calorie-burning exercise for stress relief (in lieu of alcohol) will do wonders for your waistline.

2. Don’t consume caffeine after 6PM – Although caffeinated beverages can enhance fat-burning when consumed around exercise, caffeine can be a double whammy on cortisol levels, especially if consumed at night when it’s very likely to negatively affect the quality of your sleep.  Getting quality, uninterrupted sleep each night is critical to reducing cortisol, so you’ll want to avoid caffeine in the evening hours.

3. Take time to “unplug” – A recent Canadian study showed that those who were constantly “plugged in” to technology all throughout the day (TV, smart phones, computers) were significantly more stressed than those who took time to “unplug” during designated time blocks each day.  More stress = more belly fat, so if you want a trim belly start planning some device-free time each day.

Why Instant Rice May Be Healthier Than Regular Rice

 

You probably already know that, generally speaking, brown rice is a healthier option than white rice.  It contains more fiber, vitamins and minerals while also having a lower glycemic index.

You’ve probably also heard that the “slow cook” version of brown rice is much healthier than the “instant” versions, which have been pre-cooked to allow for faster cooking times.  After all, anything that’s “easy” has to give you some sort of health trade off, doesn’t it?  So perhaps like many looking to obtain a trim, tight waistline, you labor over the stove for 45 mins to prepare your healthy brown rice.

But alas, this simply isn’t true.  Did you know that many brands of “instant” brown rice contain just as much fiber as regular brown rice and have even been tested to have a lower glycemic index than regular versions?  In fact, the ONLY brands of brown rice to score a glycemic index in the 40’s are ALL instant!  The regular versions generally score in the 60 – 80s range.

Now, with that said, this same “quick cook” phenomenon doesn’t apply to other foods like oatmeal, where the glycemic index generally increases significantly when comparing instant versions vs their regular counterparts.

But when it comes to brown rice, it seems that there is little negative trade off and actually some positive benefits to gain with a lower glyce mic index.  Not to mention, it’s ready in a few minutes instead of nearly an hour!

Dear  Patients and Friends,

Hello again. I’m going to really have some fun this month. First of all, it’s HOT out there. I know its August and all of that, but you need to be thinking ahead and preparing for cooler weather soon enough. It’s already August and January seems like it was such a long time ago. Must be my age, but hey, I am trying to decrease my age, the older I get.

 

 

“COOL FACTS”

for the HOT Summer in August…
  • Your tongue is the only muscle in your body that is attached at only ‘one’ end.
  • Ninety percent of all volcanic activity occurs in the oceans. In 1993, scientists located the largest known concentration of active volcanoes on the sea floor in the South Pacific. This area, the size of New York State, hosts 1,133 volcanic cones and sea mounts. Two or three could erupt at ANY moment.
  • The highest tides in the world are at the Bay of Fundy, which separates New Brunswick from Nova Scotia. At some times of the year the difference between high and low tide is 53 feet 6 inches, the equivalent of a three-story building.
  • The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contain 97 percent of the Earth’s water. Less than *1 percent is fresh water, and 2-3 percent is contained in glaciers and ice caps.  
  • Earth’s longest mountain range is the Mid-Ocean Ridge, which winds around the globe from the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic, skirting Africa, Asia and Australia, and crossing the Pacific to the west coast of North America. It is four times longer than the Andes, Rockies, and Himalayas combined.
  • Canada has the longest coastline of any country, at 56,453 miles or around 15 percent of the world’s 372,384 miles of coastlines.
  • A slow cascade of water beneath the Denmark Strait sinks 2.2 miles, more than 3.5 times farther than Venezuela’s Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall on land.
  • At the deepest point in the ocean the pressure is more than “8 tons per square inch”, or the equivalent of one person trying to support 50 jumbo jets.
  • At 39 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of almost the entire deep ocean is only a few degrees “above” freezing.
  • If mined, all the GOLD suspended in the world’s seawater would give each person on Earth 9 pounds of the pretty stuff. Talk about having money saved.
  • 50% of all regular long-term smokers will be killed by their habit.
  • China began producing toilet paper in 1391
  • The Japanese Spider Crab is the largest crustacean in the world
  • The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley’s gum
  •  Drinking alcohol lowers the body temperature
  •  A group of frogs is called an army

 

CHIROPRACTIC STORY


“My problems began quite unexpectedly. I bent down one day but couldn’t stand up straight again.

At 52, I’m very active. I play a lot of tennis and my job requires me to bend and twist in some awkward positions, especially when I have to squeeze through the small openings in some of the places I work.

Five days after the problem began, I was still suffering agonizing low back pain. I wasn’t able to do anything.

I took the recommendations of several friends and went to see my chiropractor who did an exam and took X-rays. I was told that the problem was in my spine; and the doctor explained the spine’s direct relation to my general health.

When I came a few weeks ago, I couldn’t even reach my knees with my hands. Now, I can touch my toes without bending my knees, which I haven’t been able to do for more years than I can remember. I can’t thank this doctor enough.

— Jonathan

 

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

 The top 10 things you do NOT want to hear in surgery.

 

  1.   Don’t worry. I think it is sharp enough.
  2.   Nurse, did this patient sign the organ donation card?
  3.   Darn it! Page 84 of the manual is missing!
  4.   Everybody stand back! I lost a contact lens!
  5.   Hand me that…uh…that uh…..thingie
  6.   Better save that. We’ll need it for the autopsy.
  7.   “Accept this sacrifice”
  8.   Whoa, wait a minute, if this is his spleen, then what’s that over there?
  9.   Ya know, there’s big money in kidneys.
  10.  What does that mean when that thing is not connected?

August is…Foot Health Month


read this

The human foot is a biological masterpiece as is every part of your body. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint — if you take care of it and don’t take it for granted. Just like your spine.


The foot can be compared to
a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.

Tons of Pressure
The components of your feet work together, sharing the tremendous pressures of daily living. An average day of walking, for example, brings a force equal to several hundred tons to bear on the feet. This helps explain why your feet are more subject to injury than any other part of your body.

Foot ailments are among the most common of our health problems. Although some can be traced to heredity, many stem from the cumulative impact of a lifetime of abuse and neglect. Studies show that 75 percent of Americans experience foot problems of a greater or lesser degree of seriousness at some time in their lives; nowhere near that many seek medical treatment, apparently because they mistakenly believe that discomfort and pain are normal and expectable.

There are a number of systemic diseases that are sometimes first detected in the feet, such as diabetes, circulatory disorders, anemia, and kidney problems. Arthritis, including gout, often attacks foot joints first.

Specialized Care

In order to keep your feet healthy, you should be familiar with the most common ills that affect them. Remember, though, that self treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one, and is generally not advisable. Make sure that you have the proper shoes, and the proper orthotic. If you want more information, just let me know on your visit.

Dear Friends and Patients,

I was thinking about July the other day and I thought I’d find out a few facts about the 4th of July. I didn’t know this, but the Declaration of Independence was not signed by all representatives until August, 1776. To make it official, John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress signed it. Now, can you guess where the saying “put your John Hancock on it” came from?

The Fourth of July is not complete without parades, beer, hot dogs, and fireworks. Fireworks are enjoyed by almost everyone including me and I’ll drive somewhere just to see a fireworks display.

“COOL FACTS”

for the Fourth of July…

 

*  On June 24, 1826, Thomas Jefferson sent a letter to Roger C. Weightman, declining an invitation to come to Washington, D.C., to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It was the last letter that Jefferson, who was gravely ill, ever wrote.

*  Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826. declaration

*  The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. (Getting that many signers to show up all at once was probably a big thing back then if you know what I mean.)

The names of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were withheld from the public for more than six months to protect the signers. If independence had not been achieved, the treasonable act of the signers would have, by law, resulted in their deaths. (Things were a lot different back then. They took a big chance signing that document.)

*  Thomas McKean was the last to sign in January, 1777. (They didn’t have the internet, or they could have signed that way for sure.)

The origin of Uncle Sam probably began in 1812, when Samuel Wilson was a meat packer who provided meat to the US Army. The meat shipments were stamped with the initials, U.S. Someone joked that the initials stood for “Uncle Sam”. This joke eventually led to the idea of Uncle Sam symbolizing the United States government. (Believe it or not Uncle Sam is seen in a good way a lot of times, and a bad way some of the time.)

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

 

Many years ago, my father visited America, from Europe, for the very first time. He wanted to go with me to the supermarket, so I invited him along.

Going up and down the aisles with me, he asked questions about things he saw.

“Vas diss?? Powdered orange juice??” he asked.

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh orange juice.”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he blurted out, “Und vas dis?? Powdered milk?”

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh milk!”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he yelled out, “Und give a look here!! Baby Powder!! Vat a country, vat a country!”

CHIROPRACTIC STORY

“I have been seeing my chiropractor for terrible foot pain during hiking. It turned out that I was totally out of alignment, my hips were not level, one leg was longer than the other, and I had some neck bones way out of alignment, as well as one near where my back pack was carried. The problem was not in my foot as I thought, it was my entire body that was misaligned and compensating by making my muscles tight all over.

I had an appointment 2 days ago. He tested my nerves in my neck. They have to do with eye movement, smiling and frowning. He did the adjustment.

Now comes the really good part. I have low blood pressure, normally 80-90/50 and very bad circulation. I have to move at night because my arms fall asleep and I am unable to move them. If I lean on my arm, or cross my legs, I lose feeling and can’t move them. I always thought this was an overgrowth of my candida, and I know the problem gets worse when I eat sugar or wheat.

The night of my adjustment I slept really well and had dreams which I can actually remember! And guess what? No circulation problems! I looked up the nerves he worked on and sure enough, one of them was related to my blood pressure!

So I tested this yesterday by eating some organic cookies! That should have made it worse. But no, I slept really well! My hands are warmer! I can cross my legs! I’m leaning on my elbow while I write this without losing circulation! I took my BP this morning out of curiosity, and it was 117/75! Woo Hoo!

Amazing! Hard to believe I went for foot pain, and something totally unexpected happened! Why didn’t I know that sooner? I never would have guessed, because my neck did not hurt.

Weight loss Update

As I mentioned in earlier newsletters, I have added a new supplement to enhance your energy, fat burning metabolism and weight loss. Losing a pound a day has never been easier. This new supplement combines MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) found in coconut and a formula which puts your body in a ketosis state. This is where your body uses fat (ketone bodies), not carbohydrate burning for energy. You may have read how MCT has been used to help brain function, mood, brain fog, Alzheimer’s and cognitive function.  Ketone metabolism has been used by athletes to help increase energy and endurance, as well as help them keep a muscular lean body. Maintaining a state of ketosis (not the same as diabetic ketosis which is a serious disease condition) reduces inflammation, helps keep a steadier blood sugar level throughout the day, helps improve muscle tissue, athletic performance, moods, cognitive function and helps with weight loss.

If you would like to know more about this ketone supplement, call the office.

Please Note: I have a lot of patients ask about the Red light Fat loss Process. Many of you, who have been thinking about it, then see a friend or relative who tried it and see how effective it is and are upset when you find out we are booked solid for the next few weeks. You have pretty much lost the summer if you wanted to try it. The fact is, it is in very high demand. I try to give my patients first chance for appointments. Unfortunately, we are already booked up into mid July. We have a cancellation waiting list a mile long. If you even think you want to experience an introductory session, you must commit and call to reserve your appointment, now.

Weeds Can Cause You A Lot of PAIN

 

After a long winter, there are a lot of people that are itching to get outside and enjoy the festivities that accompany spring.  Believe it or not, one of those activities enjoyed by many is gardening; however, individuals often anticipate the aches and pains that come along with it. I don’t know about you but when I do weeds, I’m bending over for long periods of time, I’m twisting, pulling, jerking, and this plays havoc on my lower back and arms. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to help you prevent injury and care for the health of your back.


Warm-up

Wow. Most people don’t understand that gardening is a vigorous activity and because of this your body needs to be properly warmed up.  It’s no surprise injuries arise when suddenly we are asking our bodies to twist, turn, lift, and pull after being less active during the winter months.  Going for a short 5-10 minute walk or stretching prior to gardening can significantly decrease your risk of back pain!

Pace Yourself

Spring and summer fill up fast between graduation parties, golf tournaments, weddings, lake days, and the list goes on.  All of a sudden you look at your calendar and you have one weekend left open and a big gardening job ahead!  Set realistic goals about what you want accomplished, pace yourself, and take frequent breaks to stretch and hydrate. Water is super important to your health.

Body Mechanics

If possible, raise the garden off the ground or user planters to avoid bending over.  If you must bend, don’t bend at the waist and reach.  Instead, position yourself close to the ground and cushion your knees.  There are also garden tools with long handles available to help avoid the reaching motion.  When it comes to lifting heavy pots, bushes, or watering cans use a wheel barrow to help make transferring these heavy objects easier and remember to lift using the strength of your legs.

Switch it up

By alternating activities your body can switch up its posture and which muscles are being stressed often helping to avoid those repetitive-motion injuries.  Divide your tasks up into smaller sections that allow your body to change position and give muscles a break. If it’s good for patients, it’s good for doctors as well.

Visit us today if you’re going to do any gardening. We can help identify and treat most underlying spinal problems that could predispose your body to injury or make those gardening aches and pains worse.  Being proactive about your spinal health will help ensure you continue to enjoy the joys and benefits of gardening.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing pain while gardening, tell them to give us a call; 518-489-2628

Healing Hands – April 2017

Dear Friends,

It is April, and the other day I was reading something from Oprah. She said, “Everyday brings tremendous possibility – a chance to live more fully, love more deeply and learn something new.” This newsletter is all about you learning things in small chunks. I could rant and rave about how important your adjustments are, but I choose to let you make your own decisions because when all the dust clears, you’re the only one responsible for your health. You’re older, you know about health, and if you choose not to get adjusted, to optimize your health watch your weight, to help you and april foolyour nervous system function, that’s your call. Whatever you do though, get out and enjoy your life because there is a big, beautiful world out there just waiting to be experienced. By the way, as you know, April 1st is April Fools Day.

  

“SOME COOL FACTS ABOUT…”

…the Month of April

  1. April is National Pet Month and Bowel Cancer Awareness Month… in the UK,
  2. In the US however, April is the Awareness Month for Mathematics, Stress and throughout the world it is Jazz Awareness Month.
  3. “April is the cruelest month…” It’s a time to pay your taxes, and file with the IRS.
  4. “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen,” (opening line of George Orwell’s 1984).
  5. ‘April’ was the 250th most common name for a baby girl in the United Kingdom in 2013. In the US it was 423rd.
  6. According to a recent analysis, April showers more often than not do not bring May flowers.
  7. According to the Oxford Dictionary an ‘April gentleman’ once meant ‘a foolish man; specifically a newly-married husband, considered as a fool.’
  8. “Men are April when they woo, December when they wed.”
  9. Four US Presidents were born and four died during the month of April.
  10. No film with ‘April’ in its title, or actress named ‘April’ has won an Oscar — but in 1994 April Ferry was nominated for Best Costume Design for ‘Maverick’.

 

APRIL QUOTES

 

If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings.  ~Welsh Proverb

The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being, but to remind him that he is already degraded. ~George Orwell

Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15. ~Ronald Reagan

 

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

A taxpayer received a strongly worded “second notice” that his taxes were overdue. Hastening to the collector’s office, he paid his bill, saying apologetically that he had overlooked the first notice. “Oh,” confided the collector with a smile, “we don’t send out first notices. We have found that the second notices are more effective.

 

What is a lesion in your spine?

Everyday I’m in the office, someone comes in and tells me about a pain somewhere in their neck, back, shoulder, etc. We get results with these people, but most have lesions in their spine. If you’re reading this, most likely you’ve had lesions or do have lesions as well in your spine.

So what is a disc lesion in your spine? Great question and I think one that you’ll want to understand.

Put simply, a lesion is the name given to an abnormal change which occurs to any tissue or organ, caused by a disease or injury. The abnormal growths of tissue can occur from some form of trauma, including an accident, spinal cord injury, or serious infections, such as syphilis or HIV. So here’s why I’m telling you about lesions today. If you have an accident, or injury, call this office as soon as possible. We’ll do a thorough examination and let you know if your body may suffer from a lesion in the future. If you feel okay, that’s great. Thing is that doesn’t mean anything when it comes to you developing a lesion. If you’ve suffered from any kind of fall, accident or car accident in the last six months, call the office today and schedule for a check up. It’ll be worth it.

***Amazing FACTS About Your Body***

   =With the 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside the average human body, you could circumnavigate Earth two and a half times.

=The human eye is so sensitive that if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle flickering at night from up to 30 miles away.

=Nerve impulses travel to and from the brain at speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, faster than a Formula 1 racecar.

  = When you blush, the lining of your stomach blushes too.

=The human brain can read up to 1,000 words per minute.

=Inside your belly button are thousands of bacteria that form an ecosystem the size of an entire rainforest.

=When in love, the human brain releases the same cocktail of neurotransmitters and hormones that are released by amphetamines. This leads to increased heart rate, loss of appetite and sleep, and intense feelings of excitement.

=You can see ultraviolet light, the ability is just filtered out by the eye’s lens. Some people have undergone surgery to remove the lense and can detect ultraviolet light.

=An adult is made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion) atoms. For perspective, there’s a ‘measly’ 300,000,000,000 (300 billion) stars in our galaxy.

“COOL FACTS”

Easter Facts

  • The first Easter baskets were made to look like bird’s nests.
  • The traditional act of painting eggs is called Pysanka.
  • The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.
  • In medieval times a festival of egg-throwing was held in church, during which the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys. It was then tossed from one choir boy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 was the winner and retained the egg.
  • Easter is now celebrated (in the words of the Book of Common Prayer) on the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on or after March 21, the Spring Equinox.
  • Easter Bonnets are a throwback to the days when the people denied themselves the pleasure of wearing fine angels for the duration of Lent.
  • Some Churches still keep up the old tradition of using evergreens – symbolic of eternal life – embroidered in red on white, or woven in straw, but most now prefer displays of flowers in the spring colors of green, yellow and white.
  • Americans celebrate Easter with a large Easter egg hunt on the White House Lawn.  (I think)
  •  76% of people eat the ears on chocolate bunnies first.
  • Americans consume over 16 million jellybeans on Easter, enough to circle the globe three times over.

 

“It’s Tax Time”

(Some of your favorite comics’ views..)

“It’s fitting that April 14 is National Pecan Day because today, we recognize nuts. And tomorrow, on April 15, we pay our taxes to support them.” -Craig Ferguson

“The IRS says it’s been getting death threats since the health care bill passed because the IRS is going to be the ones in charge of implementing it. They say the threats people are making to the IRS are so bad, that they are actually hindering the IRS’s ability to threaten people.” –Jay Leno

Healing Hands – March 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands – March 2017

healing hand

Dear Friends,

Well it’s not Spring yet, but the year is moving on rapidly. Happy Saint Patty’s Day. I have a question for you. “Why would you never WANT TO iron a 4-leaf clover?” The answer is simple. “You don’t want to press your luck.”

“COOL FACTS ABOUT…”

…the Irish

  • 34 million Americans have Irish ancestry, according to the 2003 US That’s almost nine times the population of Ireland, which has 4.1 million people.
  • Nine of the people who signed our Declaration of Independence were of Irish origin, and nineteen Presidents of the United States proudly claim Irish heritage — including our first President, George Washington.
  • Some American towns have “Irish” names. You could visit: Mount Gay-Shamrock, West Virginia; Shamrock Lakes, Indiana; Shamrock, Oklahoma; Shamrock, Texas; Dublin, California and Dublin, Ohio.
  • The harp is the symbol of Ireland. The color green is also commonly associated with Ireland, which is also known as “the Emerald Isle.”
  • The Irish flag is green, white and orange. The green symbolizes the people of the south, and orange, the people of the north. White represents the peace that brings them together as a nation.
  • The name “leprechaun” has several origins. It could be from the Irish Gaelic word “leipreachan,” which means “a kind of aqueous sprite.” Or, it could be from “leath bhrogan,” which means “shoemaker.”

 

Fun Facts about Clovers

  • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves found on a clover is 14. (Hard to believe huh?)
  • One estimate suggests that there are about 10,000 regular three-leaf clovers for every lucky four-leaf clover.
  • Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.

                                                

    IRISH QUOTES

“Who gossips with you will gossip of you.”

“There are fish in the sea better than have ever been caught.”

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

Joe the lawyer died suddenly, at the age of 45. He got to the gates of Heaven, and the angel standing there looked at him and said, “We’ve been waiting a long time for you.” “What do you mean,” he asked, “I’m only 45, in the prime of my life. Why did I have to die now?” The angel replied, “45? You’re not 45, you’re 82.”  “Wait a minute. If you think I’m 82 then you have the wrong guy. I’m only 45. I can show you my birth certificate.” “Hold on. Let me go check,” the angel said as he disappeared inside. After a few minutes the angel returned. “Sorry, but by our records you are 82. I checked all the hours you have billed your clients, and you have to be 82…”

Do You Have… Disc Lesions

     We have 23 discs in our spinal column. A disc is the structure sandwiched between the spinal bones (vertebrae). The disc is made up of a fibrous outer ring and a gel-like center. Discs sit in between the spinal vertebrae and act as a cushion or shock absorber between the bones. They also help the spine curve easily and join the vertebrae together.

     Many researchers believe that disc lesions are the single most common cause of lower back pain. Surprisingly, disc wear and tear can manifest as early as your teenage years.

     Over the years, the disc begins to loose a little fluid and small lesions, or cracks, begin to form on the outer wall. The soft gel-like center then begins to bulge or push the fibrous outer wall out of shape. The result is called a protrusion. 

     If the center bulges completely out of the ring, it is called a disc prolapse.

     The prolapsed disc can press on the spinal cord or put extreme pressure on the spinal nerves resulting in pain that affects sitting, standing, walking, lifting, urinating, defecating, sneezing, standing, coughing and makes moving nearly impossible. Numbness of the leg or loss of muscular control may also occur in extreme cases.

     If you have any of these symptoms, please call this office immediately and discuss your treatment options.

***Amazing FACTS About Your Body***

It is hard to grasp just how small the atoms that make up your body are until you take a look at the sheer number of them. An adult is made up of around (7 octillion) atoms 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Your FOOT & your FOREARM are the same length.  < ———Really they are!

Intelligent people have more ZINC & COPPER in their hair.

When you see blood oozing from a cut in your finger, you might assume that it is red because of the iron in it, just as rust has a reddish hue.

But the presence of the iron is a coincidence.

The red color arises because the iron is bound in a ring of atoms in hemoglobin and it’s the shape of this structure that produces the color.

Just how red your hemoglobin is depends on whether there is oxygen bound to it.

MARCH MADNESS FACTS (for all the basketball fans!)

  • There is a correlation between the distance a team travels for a game and the outcome, according to an analysis by the News & Observer of Raleigh, N.C. Over the past 12 years, teams playing within 100 miles won 77 percent of their games. At 250 miles, teams won 69 percent, and teams that traveled 500 miles or more won 46.5 percent.
  • The odds of picking a perfect bracket randomly are 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1, or more than nine quintillion to one.    (So … you’re saying I have a chance … )
  • The No. 16 seeds are 0 for 92 vs. No. 1 seeds. (Well, at least they have a chance of picking a perfect bracket.)
  • A No. 16 seed did once take a No. 1 seed, Michigan State, into overtime though, and there have also been two games decided by one point between 1’s and 16’s.
  • No. 2 and No. 3 seeds are also a combined 46-2 since 2001.
  • Two No. 1 seeds in the Championship game have faced each other five times since 1979.
  • The term “March Madness” is a trademark jointly-held by the NCAA and the Illinois High School Association, who battled over it in court. The precedent-setting case created the legal concept of “dual-use trademark.”
  • The FBI estimates that more than $2.5 billion is illegally wagered annually on March Madness each year. Less than 4% of that amount is wagered legally in Nevada.

Healing Hands – February 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands – February 2017

Dear Patients and Friends,

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?

The history of Valentine’s Day — and its patron saint — is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that dr jay heart February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus.

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first Valentine greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl who may have been his jailor’s daughter — who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed ‘From your Valentine,’ an expression that is still in use today.

Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It’s no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.

While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial — which probably occurred around 270 B.C.E. — others claim that the Christian church may have decided to celebrate Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to ‘Christianize’ celebrations of the pagan Lupercalia festival.

 

WHAT ABOUT THAT CUPID GUY?

Cupid, the child-like, winged deity often associated with modern Valentine’s Day, is actually the son of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. In Greek mythology, Cupid is known as Aphrodite’s son, Eros.

 

 

NEW YEAR NEW YOU

Sweet Mystery

For Valentines Day
My husband, so sweet
Bought hand made chocolates
For me as a treat
In a flower covered box
Came the delicious confection
But I am at a loss to answer
A most curious question
How can two pounds of chocolates
So delicious on the lips
Manage in just one night
To put 5 lbs on my hips!

 

PRESIDENT’S DAY

Washington’s Birthday is the official name designated to what many of us know as President’s Day. During the month of February the birthday of two of our greatest Presidents takes place: both George Washington, who was born on Feb. 22nd and Abraham Lincoln, born on Feb. 12th.

However, Washington’s birthday has been publicly celebrated since he was in office, before Abraham Lincoln was even born. Much of the debate over the name of the holiday springs from the fact that states can follow their own holidays how they see fit and many of them choose to also honor Lincoln, calling the celebration President’s Day.

It was in 1968 that the term President’s Day came up for legal consideration in the Congress but was shot down, though the holiday was moved to fall between the two President’s birthdays. Again in the 1980’s there was a resurgence of the term with advertisers which solidified the holiday name in American culture. Today, few Americans prefer to call the holiday Washington’s Birthday in lieu of President’s Day.

VALENTINE QUOTE

I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

Avoid the Big-Time Corporate Heart Attack

By Al Sears, MD

You probably know that Enron CEO Ken Lay’s life was cut short by a heart attack. His doctors knew he had heart disease. In fact, he had suffered several heart attacks before the one that killed him … and he’d been taking statin drugs to lower his cholesterol for years.

Statin drugs work by blocking the body’s production of cholesterol. This lowers total cholesterol – not just “bad” LDL cholesterol but also “good” HDL cholesterol. And to avoid developing heart disease – even to reverse damage that’s already been done – HDL is key.

HDL can reduce your risk of heart disease regardless of your LDL levels. The Framingham study (the most reliable and unbiased source of data for heart disease risk) shows that if your HDL is high enough, your LDL will have no negative impact on your heart health. In fact, if your HDL is above 85, you are at no greater risk of heart disease if your total cholesterol is 350 than if it’s 150.

Here are four natural ways to increase your HDL:

  1. Exercise in intervals – at progressively higher intensity as you get used to it – for 20 minutes every other day. TAKE IS SLOW!
  2. Eliminate trans-fats from your diet. Cut out breaded/fried foods, commercially baked crackers and cookies, and anything containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable or soybean oil.
  3. Increase your omega-3 fatty acids by adding fish oils, avocados, nuts, olives, and eggs to your diet.
  4. Add fresh garlic to your meals as often as possible.

Intimacy and Your Health

Our bodies are wonderful machines that can do incredible things for us. They can make us

feel great, provides energy and produces feel good endorphins. There have been numerous studies that show “intimacy” can enhance immune function, relieve pain, reduce stress and ease depression. One study, conducted in South Wales, found that the mortality risk was 50% lower among men who had frequent sexual activity. Other studies have found both men and women reported relief of lower back pain. Another study found that 32% of women reported better sleep and decreased depression. Two 2001 studies cited some relief of migraines, in women, as well as relief of PMS cramps.

A young woman was taking an afternoon nap. After she woke up, she told her husband, “I just dreamt that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine’s Day.
What do you think it means?” “You shall know tonight”, he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it. She found a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams“.

 

Benefits of Pets

Does owning a pet make people healthier? Hard evidence is less than conclusive, but the health benefits of owning a pet may decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and feelings of loneliness. Pets encourage you to exercise, spend more time outdoors and present more opportunities for socialization.

The enthusiasm wanes and life goes on as it always had. Few of us actually make any real change in our lives.

I’m not here to depress you but I am here to help. If you have your health you will have the energy and motivation to improve other areas of your life.

I offer you the tools to obtain better health. Chiropractic, unique supplements such as Keto/OS, Red light Fat Loss treatments, as well as customized metabolic weight loss programs. The saying goes; showing up is 90% of success. We can’t make it easier than that. Make a difference in your life. Call the office today and commit to achieving your health goals.

  • It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky.

  Did You Know?

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) made sketches of a submarine and William Bourne, a British mathematician, drew plans for a submarine in 1578. But it was only in 1620 that Cornelius van Drebbel, a Dutch inventor, managed to build a submarine. He wrapped a wooden rowboat tightly in waterproofed leather and had air tubes with floats to the surface to provide oxygen. Of course, there were no engines yet, so the oars went through the hull at leather gaskets. He took the first trip with 12 oarsmen in the Thames River – staying submerged for 3 hours.

Coffee is the world’s most popular stimulant: 4 out of 5 Americans drink it, consuming more than 400 million cups a day. Consumption in Scandinavian countries is more than 12kg (26lb) per capita. With more than 25 million people employed in the industry, coffee is one of the largest trade industries in the world.

The word “tip” is also related to coffee. It comes from old London coffeehouses where the waiters’ brass boxes were etched with the inscription, “To Insure Promptness.”

 Interesting Quotes

   “I think the biggest mistake most people make when they pick their first job is they don’t worry enough about whether they’ll love the work, and they worry more about whether it’s good experience.”                                                          [Steve Ballmer]

   “Every great human achievement is preceded by extended periods of dedicated, concentrated effort.”                                                                   [Brian Tracy]  

  Hands   hand

Without thinking twice, draw a circle in the air with your left hand. If you drew the circle clockwise, chances are you’re left-handed. More men are left-handed (12.6% of the male population) than women (9.9% of the female population).

Reverse Roughness and Dryness

Olive oil is an effective moisturizer. Massage some into your hands and give it time to sink in. (You may also want to put on a pair of rubber or latex gloves on to avoid getting oil stains on whatever you touch.) After about 30 minutes, take off the gloves and wipe the oil off your soft, moisturized hands with a dry paper towel. You won’t believe the difference. I didn’t! TRY IT.

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

A local United Way office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.
“Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you are not giving a single penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some way?”

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?”

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, “Um … no.”

The lawyer interrupts, “or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?”

The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again.

“or that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident,” the lawyer’s voice rising in indignation, “leaving her penniless with three children?!” The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, “I had no idea…”

On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, “So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?”

*********************

Dear God, my prayer for 2016 is a FAT bank account and a THIN body. Please don’t mix it up like you did this year.

Many things can be preserved in alcohol this New Years Eve. DIGNITY is not one of them.

 

Every year I make a resolution to change myself……. this year making a resolution to be myself!

What happened to the man who thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year? He gave up thinking.

The Story of Chiropractic

 

The explained to Harvey Lillard that he felt that this “bone was out of place” and that it could be causing pressure on his spinal cord, and that this pressure could be the reason that Harvey was now deaf.  he year was 1895, the same year that x-rays were discovered.   At that time, Health Care was provided by a diversity of professions, including osteopaths, magnetic healers and “medical” doctors.   In those days, most medical education consisted of working as an “apprentice” for a medical doctor, and learning the craft by observation.
D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, was a magnetic healer, with a huge  practice in Davenport, Iowa.   He had doubts about the “germ theory” as the complete explanation of the cause of all disease.   After all, if germs could kill…shouldn’t we all be dead?   He asked “how it was that 2 brothers could work in the same shop, eat the same food, sleep in the same bed, and that one would succumb to a disease while the other one would not”?
His belief was that it was not just the “seed” (or germ) which was the cause.   He felt that the “soil” or the bodies own recuperative (healing) power (which he later labeled the “innate intelligence”, and we now call homeostasis) was the missing part of the equation, which defined the continuum between health and “dis-ease”. One day D.D. was talking with Harvey Lillard, the man who owned the janitor service in his building.   Harvey was deaf, stone cold deaf.   He mentioned to D.D. that years before, while lifting a heavy weight, he felt something “snap” at the base of his neck.   It was several weeks later that his hearing started to “fade”.
D.D. was intrigued, and asked Harvey if he could examine his back.   Lillard said, “Sure, go ahead.” What D.D. Palmer “felt” (and we now call this “palpation”) was that one of the upper bones of the shoulder blades was sticking out much more than the one above or below it.

He convinced Harvey to lie down on the couch, and D.D. placed his hands on the specific bone that he thought was causing the problem and, as D.D. explained, “wracked it back into position”.   Wrack is not a good word. Pushed is a better word.

When Harvey got up, he stated that he could hear a horse drawn cart down in the street!   This was the first thing he had heard in 17 years!
Our “no drugs, no surgery” approach has remained true.  What I do as a chiropractor with the adjustment of the spine, is I try and remove the interference of the brain’s control of the body.   We call that interference, which impinges (pinches) the delicate nerves a “ subluxation
